DEPARMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING

Courses offered

B.E (Civil Engineering) - 120 Seats

PROFILE:

  • Civil engineering is the one of the most traditional engineering studies in India and civil engineering considered as a single largest branch among all the engineering branches. The Civil Engineering discipline was started in the academic year 2011-2012 and is currently offering B.E. Programme in Civil Engineering with an intake of 120 seats.
  • The professional deals with planning,designing,constructing and maintaining of  public works likes roads ,bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, dams, water woks, sewage and sanitary system etc.,
  • The Department is supported by teaching and non-teaching staff of rich and varied experience. All laboratories in the Department are well furnished with the state-of-art equipments and software’s. The Department is offers a multitude of challenging career opportunities and gives innovative, creative ideas in field of civil engineering.

VISION:

  • To impart technical education to produce competitive and smart engineers. To inculcate high sense of discipline, combined with education to make the students as persons with right combination of academic excellence and personality to develop the infrastructure,
  • Our Department is committed to provide our students the latest learning techniques and modern materials-knowledge in all sectors to make them globally recognizable Civil Engineers.

Objective

  • To inculcate knowledge through laboratory and field study, apart from effective teaching-learning process. To provide opportunities for development of knowledge, soft skills & professional abilities to the faculty members & students.
  • To synergize the efforts of both students and staff to meet the ever-growing construction-needs of the industry. To encourage the students to undertake research and consultancy works .To provide the youth with the best opportunities

HYDRAULICS ENGINEERING AND FLUID MECAHICS LAB

The verification of the principles and theories in an experimental way is carried in this laboratory. It includes the study of pressure due to fluids, efficiency at outlet and working of Turbines.

STRENGTH OF MATERIALS LAB

The experimental work involved in this laboratory makes the student understand the fundamental modes of loading of the structures and also make measurements of loads, displacements and strains. Relating these quantities, the student obtains the strength of the material and stiffness properties of structural elements.
